  • Crosses the Line Twice: An Easter strip displayed a Menorah gradually being extinguished with the words "They know not what they do" and turning into a cross.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Wolf, who also has the rare distinction of being introduced after the strip came "under new management", a common breeding ground for Scrappys.
    • Gronk.
  • Seasonal Rot: Many fans felt strip went downhill following the original creator's late-life conversion to hard-core fundamentalist Christianity. See above and below. After his death, the strip gained a new production team and turned back to its more wacky gag-a-day roots.
  • Unfortunate Implications:
    • The "menorah" incident mentioned above.
    • No other races have been depicted apart from generic white people (who happen to be cavemen), but one comic has B.C. answer the telephone to hear a voice on the other side say "Your raundry is leddy." The last panel is just B.C. giving an unimpressed look to the viewer.
    • Not to mention a strip that's been interpreted as a slam (pun actually intended) against Islam.
    • The only two female characters are called Fat Broad and Cute Chick.
    • A Pearl Harbor Day strip features a character reading from a pre-apocalyptic dictionary that the word "infamy" had been forgotten because of Toyota's sales.
